Im­por­tance of civic ed­u­ca­tion

Pakistan Observer - - OPINION - DAN­ISH MA­LIK

Ev­ery state has its own laws and rules, ac­cord­ing to which one should be re­warded or pun­ished. The thing that is im­por­tant than those laws is that cit­i­zens are aware of those laws or not. If a per­son is not aware of his or her rights then how can he, or she, would fight for sur­vival? So the civic ed­u­ca­tion is im­por­tant to be the part of the race.

Ev­ery state gives its cit­i­zens equal op­por­tu­ni­ties to live their lives ac­cord­ing to their choice. Every­one has a right to se­lect a ca­reer of one’s own choice. The cit­i­zens have a demo­cratic right to elect the rep­re­sen­ta­tives of their own choice. No one have the au­thor­ity to force them and change their mind. They have free­dom of speech. They have the right to ques­tion on the per­for­mance of the rep­re­sen­ta­tives they elect. They have a right to know be­cause they are pay­ing taxes and from these taxes those rep­re­sen­ta­tives are get­ting salary. So in this case they have a right to know that their taxes are for the pros­per­ity of the state or for the pock­ets of the po­lit­i­cal lead­ers.

It’s a good thing to ques­tion to get aware­ness but it is worse thing to stay quite when you are aware of the things hap­pen­ing. You’ll get an­swer when you’ll ques­tion not by stay­ing quite. It’s your right to ques­tion not only to get aware­ness but also to gain sat­is­fac­tion. — Via email
